PHIL 34 Language and Thought

Studies of language and cognition play central and defining roles in the history and development of philosophy. Students will investigate the nature of language and its relations to logic, thought and reality.  Specific topics may include theories of signs, meaning, reference, truth, and speech acts.  Other possibilities include necessity, analyticity, tensed statements, counterfactual conditionals, indexicals, pragmatics, metaphor, intentionality and vagueness.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
